A western Kansas teen has died following a rollover accident Monday night.

The accident happened around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday on West Road 270 at Pence Road in Scott County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a Chevrolet pickup was heading westbound when the driver veered to the right into a ditch. The truck came back onto the road in a slide then rolled over, ejecting the driver.

Emergency responders found 16-year-old Timothy Dirks of Scott City at the scene. He was taken to a Scott City hospital, then transferred to a hospital in Hays where he later died.
